Service Dog

Training

Training dogs to help you with

your disability

If your need help with a disability you have, K9 GOT YOUR SIX may be able to help you acquire a service dog and train it to service you with whatever need you may have. Sessions can be done in the comfort of your own home or at my K9 RANCH, with personalized plans to fit your pet’s needs and your lifestyle.

K9 Got Your Six provides custom training for service dog teams according to individual needs. Our coaches have expertise working with kids, adults, and families training their own dogs to make successful dog/handler teams. We focus on a personalized strategy that promotes how your partnership with your service dog can allow you to conquer the challenges you face in your house and in public. We utilize positive-reinforcement procedures to educate the behaviours that are essential for puppies working in public places, and also to train the particular tasks you want in the service dog partner of your life.

 

Service dogs give you the freedom to do more things by helping you in everyday life. Service dogs can enhance the lives of people who have a broad array of disabilities, whether physical, neurological, or psychiatric. We train dogs to sense symptoms of several disabilities such as: autism, anxiety disorders, depression, diabetes, epilepsy, hearing impairment, multiple sclerosis (MS), narcolepsy, post-traumatic anxiety (PTS or PTSD), acute allergies, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). We also regularly customize jobs for a particular customer's needs.
